Actually, I did think of that, but went with it anyway.

I hope that was his tentacle. Please tell me that was his tentacle. I think I need a bath.

Actually, SVC wrote the piece based on a scenario I wrote. Smile I didn't expect the story to go all the directions it did.

I think I am influenced about the Frax because I know the person that Rya Nopel was named for and he certainly has hands. Smile However he is not blue.

I think that tentacles would have been mentioned had they been present.

I have to admit every melodramatic bone of my body loved the story. Smile

That's official then: Ryan Opel is a blue humanoid.

I was thinking about doing an "alternate reality" story about a Frax submarine and had the Frax as blue humanoids with spiny quills over the head, back of the neck and shoulders (think Sonic the Hedgehog-ish, but much more humanoid).

The differences that the space and Caps keys can make ...

Rya Nopel is a blue humanoid.

Ryan Opel is a regular human.

Damn. I was hoping they'd be laptopoid, being simulator people and all.

Or perhaps they just have avatars.....
